At Williams Dental Practice we advise you individually on the best approach to good dental health and hygiene. We’ll also discuss fully with you the options available for any treatment you may require – both restorative and cosmetic.
Restorative treatment helps repair teeth that have been damaged or lost through decay or chipped in accidents. It can also be used to improve appearances by closing gaps, repairing chips and treating discoloured or unsightly teeth.
Crowns are a porcelain or metal cover for damaged or unsightly teeth. Porcelain crowns are carefully crafted to look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth.
Veneers provide a wafer thin mask of porcelain to hide discolouration and close unsightly gaps with little or no work being needed on the tooth itself.
Bridges can be used to firmly fit a replacement tooth or teeth, which are carefully attached to adjacent teeth.
Dentures in metal or acrylic are used to replace lost or missing teeth. Their appearance can be changed to make them more natural looking.
Unsightly metal fillings can be replaced by natural-coloured fillings to improve the look of your smile and allow you to laugh with confidence. Dental composite fillings can be used for filling new cavities, replacing metal or amalgam fillings, repairing chipped teeth and also can help to remove gaps between teeth.
Invisible braces are ideal for adults and children who would like to straighten their teeth, without anyone knowing they are wearing a brace. We use Invisalign® braces, which are highly regarded in the industry and can be easily removed for cleaning or eating.
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom made series of clear aligners which move your teeth gradually to the desired position. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth.
There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You achieve the confident smile that you have always wanted. The best part is that most people won’t even know you are straightening your teeth.
There are a number of reasons why you might get your teeth whitened. Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older.
Your teeth can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant. Smoking can also stain teeth.
‘Calculus’ or tartar can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.

Botox® and dermal fillers
Amreeta Sanghera MSc is trained in botox® and dermal filler treatments and offers both these treatments at the practices. Amreeta is accredited and is on the “Treatments you can Trust” register.
Anti-wrinkle injections (commonly known as ‘botox®’) provide a quick and effective remedy for the facial lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry, and environmental factors can produce, even on a younger person’s face. Anti-wrinkle injection skin treatment smoothens frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes and at the base of the nose. Also, “crow’s feet” wrinkles at the corners of the eyes fade or disappear for a more youthful and vital facial appearance. More info about botox®
Dermal fillers are used as an effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. They can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles, fill hollows and smooth the contours of your face. Anti-ageing facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin and provide volume for tired lines and wrinkles.
As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps shape and support it. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress can all age your appearance. The face can also begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks and a ‘dragged down’ appearance.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a gel that is injected into the skin using a very fine needle. It is like the body’s own natural substances and is therefore totally safe. It is comparable with hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. This hyaluronic acid is used to plump up the lips or to raise the skin. It can also be used to fill in areas that are wrinkly.
For what purposes should it be taken?
It can be taken to enhance lips, deep folds on face, lines on face, correction of wrinkles, volume augmentation of your lips, fixing your smile lines – correcting thin superficial lines near your eyes, forehead, and mouth, filling of your nasal furrows and oral commissures. It also irons out superficial wrinkles, creates volume on cheeks, and brings back youthful looks.
